The Sanctuary is exactly that - a little oasis of escapism in the heart of NYC. Funky decor, all chandeliers, flickering fires and Marilyn Monroe movies, perfumed air, bonsai trees and eclectic music. We had a Deluxe Queen-sized room. It was big enough, not huge. Good contemporary decor. A bit dark due to no window. The rainfall shower was simply gorgeous. The en-suite worked for us, but might be pretty tight for those who need plenty of space.
We enjoyed the breakfast - plenty of patisserie, boiled eggs, fresh fruit, cereals and good coffee. The restrooms are pretty good to look at, too. Rudy the Barman lived up to the reputation he enjoys here on TA, and I blame him entirely for the shocking hangover I experienced on my last day. :-)) We also enjoyed the small coffee bar (Lavazza) in the lobby, with delicious financiers and those other tiny cakes (sorry, can't remember the names).
In all, I wouldn't bother considering anywhere else in NYC, but would go straight back here. This hotel played a key part in making our first visit to the city a simply fantastic experience.
